5-meo-dmt and 5-meo-amt vials
- INTELLIGENCE ALERT - &#8232;DIPROPYLTRYPTAMINE AND 5-METHOXY-ALPHA-METHYLTRYPTAMINE&#8232;IN ST. MARY’S COUNTY, MARYLAND The Maryland State Police Forensic Sciences Division (Pikesville, Maryland) received a submission of three glass vials (approximately 4.5 x 1.3 centimeters) with (presumed) manufacturers’ labels reading “N,N-Dipropyltryptamine HCl”, “5-Methoxy-alpha-methyl-tryptamine (5-MeO-AMT)”, and “5-Methoxy-N,N-dimethyltryptamine”, along with some greenish brown vegetable matter and a multi-colored glass-smoking device. An Emergency Medical Technician recovered the items from a college student who passed out in a campus dormitory lobby (campus located in St. Mary’s County). The student later confessed to buying the vials off of the Internet, origin unknown. Two of the glass vials were blue; the label on one vial included a white horseshoe enclosed in a blue circle, and the other label included the letters “rac” in green hexagons. The third vial was brown with no logos (see Photos 1 and 2, below ). Each vial contained a sweet smelling, off-white powder (net weights not taken). Analysis by color testing, UV/Vis, FTIR, and GC/MS confirmed N,N-dipropyltryptamine, 5-MeO-AMT, and 5-methoxy-N,N-dimethyltryptamine in the vials so labelled (not quantitated). Additional analyses by color testing, UV Vis, and GC/MS indicated that the greenish brown vegetable matter contained no controlled substances, but that the smoking device contained 5-methoxy-N,N-dimethyltryptamine. It is suspected that the greenish brown vegetable matter was used as a medium for smoking the tryptamines. This was the first known submissions of these types to the Forensic Sciences Division. None of the identified tryptamines are currently controlled under Maryland statutes.
